    Absolute stunner, Dennis. Pleased you've done away with the headstock overlay logo.
    Sure you'll sell it quick mate; I wish I could afford such a high quality instrument.

    Wow. That thing is gorgeous. LOTS of intricate work in all of that woodwork.

    I'm with Nickie. That would be my dream banjo uke if I had the money!

    Well done!

    The more I look at this one, the more I like it. Is it safe to say this is your best yet? Looking forward to the sound sample video.

    I'd have a hard time picking between this and a Beansprout. If there's a better banjo uke builder out there than you two, I haven't seen them.
